CSF Dual-Pass Top Mount Charge Air Cooler - F8x M2 Competition, M3 & M4
The Racing & High Performance Division of CSF Inc. strives to build and engineer the most advanced, efficient, and reliable cooling systems in the world. CSF manufacturers a wide variety of sophisticated cooling systems with more than 117 different applications ranging from high performance all-aluminium direct-fit replacement radiators, to complete custom applications for race cars, power sports, off-road, marine, and industrial uses.
CSF is proud to introduce the world's first cast end tank designed top-mount intercooler for the BMW S55 engine found in the F87 M2 Competition, F80 M3 or F82/F83 M4. Utilizing multiple air dividers cast into the hot/cold side end tanks for optimized air flow, CSF designed this liquid-to-air core from a blank slate, and completed extensive testing and analysis to ensure optimum performance and cooling. The core itself is 60% larger and features a dual-core cross-flow design with 2-stage water cooling for maximum efficiency.
The CSF Dual-Pass Top Mount Charge Air Cooler is a direct replacement for BMW part number 17517846235.

Andrew Brien @ Southern BM has been helping me for years with my BMWs - he is extremely astute and has a refreshingly customer-first mentality. I trust him to do the best work and only the best!
The guys are great, definitely take your BMW there.
My first dealing with Southern BM was a pleasant one. I had some springs and shocks installed and Sean was a delight to deal with. Knowledgeable, helpful and offered solutions when not everything went to plan. I would happily recommend them.
Took my e60 there, Jimmy was an absolute pleasure to deal with, very honest, explained everything in detail, and provided some great recommendations due to my individual circumstance. Can not recommend highly enough.
After 3 other BMW workshops couldn't fix the problem with my M3. SouthernBM sorted it. Excellent to deal with, great communication and customer service.
